If you noticed he's an arab ad they say, arab children study english,russian,french...etc. can we say there're english because they study it? it's same to him he's an arab studied syriac Latin greece and persian, can we say he's persian because he knows it. all what I can say that old sources say that he's an arab and am with who lived with him of course. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.189.69.65 (talk) 13:19, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

mutiple text[edit]

I cannot find direct support for the quote but it is probably genuine. It is likely from his letter to Ali. Can anyone help? J8079s (talk) 16:39, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Italic not necessary?[edit]

The first paragraph is in italic typeface. I think this is unnecessary. Can someone indicate the purpose of the italic? If not, let's remove the italic. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Karl gregory jones (talkcontribs) 03:57, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

There seems to be controversy in terms of his ethnicity. Considering ethnicity was not much of a declaration at his time, I think it would be better to not label him anything in the beginning of the article, and later on mention how different sources have him be an Assyrian while others as an Arab.
